O.G. Rank was born in Santiago, Dominican Republic on November 27 1980. He started showing a passion for music at an early age. At age 5 he was discovered by his cousin George who was a teenager and started recording him on old cassette tapes singing romantic love songs. He started playing the Piano at age 10 when he asked his parents that he wanted to start taking Piano Lessons. During his early teenage years he began to play music with his long time friend Edwin Gomez in Santiago. At age 13 he moved to the United States with his father, but a very distant relationship and the struggles of adolescence made him rebel and abandon the Piano. He picked up the guitar around 15 and started playing with some Reggae/Ska bands in New Jersey after High School and during some College years. He obtained his Sound Engineer Degree at New Jersey Groove Academy in New Brunswick in 2002. He's been an independent artist/producer since then and has been performing for almost his whole life as you can tell in this short Bio.
